Turns out pegasi aren’t the only ponies that fly, thanks to a squadron of pilots-in-training in the U.S. Air Force who are now wearing My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic-themed patches on their flight suits.
That’s right. Class 14-05 at Vance Air Force Base in Oklahoma is making the skies a little friendlier with the rallying cry that “flying is magic,” thanks to their brony-approved pink and purple “My Little Pilot” class patches, which–true to the spirit of the friendship-themed Hub TV show–is meant to create a bond amongst the pilot class.
“The purpose of a class patch is to develop camaraderie, morale, and unity within a pilot training class,” First Lt. Tom Barger, a public affairs officer for Vance, told WIRED in an email. “It is a token of esprit de corps.”
